Faculty

Faculty applicants can use funds for any combination of three areas:

1. Research: Applicant can request summer salary support needed to develop a research project to enhance and advance the field of service-learning and community engagement. The outcome of this research will be a publishable paper for a peer-reviewed publication.

2. Development: Faculty can utilize funds to travel to and attend or present at a conference to enhance their understanding of service-learning or civic engagement.

3. On-campus visibility: Faculty member will serve as a champion on their campus for the advancement of engaged research and teaching. Funds should be used primarily to hold an event on campus that includes an outside expert/speaker being brought your campus to discuss service-learning or civic engagement.

Students

Participants will be students who are looking for opportunities to take leadership for a community-designated project, bringing creative solutions to public problems. The project aims to empower young people and reinvigorate their communities by requiring students to create and implement an action to increase participatory citizenship on their campus. Participation will reinforce each individual’s personal commitment to civic engagement, while also strengthening campus and community support. 

Each participant is to select a project from one of three tracks:

  1. K-12 education
  2. Sustainability
  3. Hunger/homelessness
